Markdown Here

Ever since I discovered Markdown, I’ve been finding ways to use it aside from Jekyll. It’s made writing faster and simpler for me. I recently discover a browser extension (available in most browsers) called Markdown Here. With the extension installed, you can use Markdown syntax to write your emails in Gmail (using your browser) and it will apply formats to your text.

I found out about the extension while looking for an alternative to OSX’s native Mail app. It’s been preventing my Macbook Pro from shutting down. I found out about Postbox and Markdown Here was one of the plugins available for it. I followed the link and read more.

If you’re curious about Markdown, you can visit http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax. It’s not for everyone and it does take some time getting used to. But for me, I save a considerable amount of time when using it.
